|1 year 1 day ago||Does anyone know anything about Ruthven?||
I read about Blimpy's earlier today on Facebook. From a similar source, I've heard that the University has plans to demolish the Ruthven Natural History Museum and build a large biology building in its place. A merger of "two biology departments" would follow.
Does anyone here have know anything solid about that? The only things I've been able to find online mention muesum renovations, the demolition of some med school buildings, and the acquisition of the Pfizer campus.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Negative Approach||
If I make it to a game, I'd prefer to hear the band over recorded music that would be played in a bar.
That being said, how about playing the song "Pressure" by the Detroit band Negative Approach when the other team is lining up for a field goal? It's a very short song and could be played in its entirety.
Or how about anything by the legendary Ann Arbor band, Rodent Kontrol?
|2 years 1 week ago||Early Enrollment Question||
If Michigan is to take 28 in this class, 3 recruits will need to enroll early. IIRC, Ringer and Wilson are set to do so. Is there a third early enroll already lined up? It's already December.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||71?||
You mention here that you played under Carr and elsewhere you posted that you played line. If people were to start thinking your statements are those of someone who wore the number 71, would that be fair or way off base? Or yes, no, maybe so?
|2 years 2 weeks ago||A Question I would Like to Hear||
Carr was briefly a defensive backs coach at WVU while Rodriguez was playing HS football in WV. A question I would like to hear asked at some point somewhere is whether Carr had a hand in evaluating Rodriguez's potential as a college player. Obviously that would have been out of context on Saturday.

This has been happening for some time and this seems like a good place to mention it ... sometimes (not 100% of the time) when I click on the little ">>" at the bottom of the list of MGoBoard topics, I will be presented with a second copy of the list of Diary topics rather than a set of previous Board topics.

I was looking up the 1969 Wolverines on Wikipedia, when I came across an article about an old mascot called Biff, the Michigan Wolverine. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biff,_the_Michigan_Wolverine). At the end, there was this line:
"Blogger Brian Cook, owner of the popular blog MGoBlog, was given the middle name "Biff" by his parents as a tribute to this legend of Michigan sports."
Brian, what is the voracity of that claim?

|2 years 6 weeks ago||Did Any MGoBlog Users Attend the Northmont Game?||
According to this article in the Dayton Daily News (http://www.daytondailynews.com/dayton-sports/high-school-sports/wayne-st...) Ringer's team, Northmont lost it's 10/21 game. Did anyone reading this attend the game? If so, was Ringer on the Northmont sideline?
|2 years 6 weeks ago||30-and-Out?||
Lloyd Carr was hired by U of M in 1980. He left in 2010. Wouldn't that make his book "30-(Depending on Anniversary Dates)-and-Out: the Carr Years"?
I noticed while looking that up on Wikipedia that Carr was for part of 1980 a defensive backs coach under Don Nehlen at WVU. Rich Rodriguez was all-state football and basketball in West Virginia. He attended WVU beginning in 1981. Given that timeline, one would think that Carr would have to have been involved in the evaluation of Rodriguez as a college prospect.
If there journalist out there with access to WVU coaches and records from that period, this could make an interesting article, given Bacon's book is coming out now.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Express! Yes!||
In the proposed configuration the Express and the Pistons could play there at the same time. There might even be a Kelly Tripucka sighting.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||Late-night places?||
In a similar vein, are there any late-night place besides the Fleetwood open near campus? Say, between 2:00 AM and 6:30 AM? Are there any bars that serve until 2:00 AM and allow you to drink-up until 2:30?
|2 years 12 weeks ago||Thanks!||
Thanks! It looks like they've made that area greener since I've been there last.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||Exactly where are they set up?||
It looks like they're set up between Nat Sci and the Chem building, but the depth of field looks a little odd. Does anyone know exactly where the stage is?
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Bradley Horowitz is Blue||
Bradley Horowitz is Blue (https://plus.google.com/113116318008017777871/posts). I'm not sure if this is the same person that HarBooYa mentions. He was a skater and was in a band back in the day.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Averaging those numbers...||
IIRC, the 85 scholarship limit has been in place since 1994. If I average the 10 years of data posted above, it comes out with 21.5 recruits/year. The last 5 years gives 22.6 recruits/year. That is only a fractional player away from the 23 - 25 recruit range stated by Hoke.

|2 years 46 weeks ago||We Have 12 Known Opponents||
Right now I see that we are going to play Western Michigan, Notre Dame, Eastern Michigan, San Diego State, Minnesota, Northwestern, Michigan Stae, Purdue, Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, and Ohio State.
How about having as a goal to win each of those games the week we play it (with maybe some look ahead to Ohio State, provided it doesn't distract from the task at hand)?
Depending on how the team does, they may or may not play one other conference game and one other non-conference game. However, those games are still very TBD.

Is there another picture with the rest of the cat?

Looks like the gator thinks someone brought their work home with them.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||Old Coke Commercial||
I've got an image of an old Coke commercial in my head ... but with Joe Green tossing 10 bags of clothing at the kid instead of just a jersey.

Given the present Athletic Director, I think we should consider pizza to be a breakfast food, too.

|2 years 47 weeks ago||Viable Candidates||
"some of the people they mention are not viable candidates for Michigan for a variety of reasons."
It would be cool to hear those criteria from Brandon even if he couldn't mention names. (It would be even cooler to hear names, though.)

Congratulations to Brian! The next thing you know there will be kittens on the set of GameDay.
